TOKYO (AP) — Simone Biles will not defend her Olympic title.

The American gymnastics superstar has withdrawn the all-around competition to focus on her mental well-being.

The decision comes a day after Biles removed herself from the team final following one rotation because she felt she wasn’t mentally ready.

Jade Carey, who finished ninth in qualifying, will take Biles’ place in the all-around.
